Have you read Diamondacious yet? It’s the most wonderful and slightly raunchy novel, set in Fort Lauderdale. When you read this story, if you know Fort Lauderdale, then you’ll notice that the action takes place in locations you know – places like Shooters and of course, Las Olas.
In fact, a lot of our heroine’s revelations happen thanks to her gay hairdresser who works at the now defunct Yellow Strawberry on the boulevard. (The Yellow Strawberry, you’ll remember, is the place where Bernard Hunwick purchased his guns).
You’ll also, if you’ve been around Fort Lauderdale for a while, recognize some of the characters. The names have been changed, naturally, but that makes the book so much fun. There are plenty of aha moments.
Read about Debbie, the girl from the wrong side of the tracks who decides that she’s going to be a Lauderdale Lady – complete with multi-million dollar home, luxury yachts and the best of everything. It seems like a tall order for the dumpy little girl with the crooked teeth who, when she finally find a man, also finds herself expecting a mixed race baby.
